Back in black

I am back with another embossed paisley card. I loved the effect when I embossed in white so I decided to try in black. The paisley image is just as impressive in black. This card was very straight forward to make; I embossed in black embossing powder on white cardstock and then sponged in three colours before matting in black and popping the panel up on a black card base.

For more heat embossing ideas pop over to the Penny Black blog and see the lovely cards the other designers have created.


Stamps: Paisley, (Penny Black)
Inks: Memento Danube Blue, New Sprout & Cottage Ivy, Versafine Onyx Black(Tsukineko)
